Cement Tile Pavers Create Rustic Elegance

Posted by William Buyok on

Rustic Cement Tile Pavers create elegance with the feel of Spanish bisque. In this installation, a 12-inch square format is used in Cotto Gold. These paving tiles come with slightly irregular edges and natural color variation in each tile - the same look you might find in an old California Mission.

Cement Tile Pavers Create Rustic Elegance

The cement or concrete tile's appearance is indistinguishable from clay bisque tiles and provides the same rustic look you might find in an old Hacienda and rambling Spanish villa. The tiles are generally laid on a wide grout line to help maintain Old World charm. We recommend a grout width of 1/2".


Rustic Paver Tiles are Different

Our Rustic Paver Tiles differ from traditional cement tile. They are made with a soft mold. Traditional patterned cement tiles are made the old way with a steel mold and the color layer is only in the top 1/8" of the tile, whereas Rustic Paver Tiles have true through-body color.


The texture, feel and style of the tiles is also very different, including the color. While both tiles are handmade and will have some variation, classic cement tiles have a more traditional, slightly formal, sophisticated look that works well for creating a multi-color pattern using the face of the tile. The cement Pavers have a rustic feel with a softer defining edge, and have only one color throughout each tile.

With so many sizes, shapes and colors to choose from, this is one tile you can't get enough of! Handmade rustic cement tiles can be used on floors, walls and both interior and exterior locations - even those subjected to freeze/thaw cycles.

Benefits of Cement Tile

  1. Handmade appearance for a rustic look.
  2. True "through body" color. You can't scratch, cut or remove the surface color layer.
  3. Rated for freeze/thaw cycles.


How to Buy Handmade Rustic Pavers
